    The camera you don't have with you is useless.

    Sounds like this is one of those lessons you learned the hard way?

    Actually the corollary is "The one you have with you is usually the least optimal for the shot you are taking." :D That has more impact with the older generation of snappers versus the Instagram/SnapChat/Swipe Right crowd.

    And the underlying corollary to your corollary is: "Murphy was an optimist.":D

    I’ve always noted the “wrong lens” corollary. Great camera, great lens, wrong Focal length. You can fondle your expensive stuff while pondering the injustices of life.

    Then there's "You're in a hurry to get somewhere else when the photo op presents itself."
